The Ephrata Codex is a 972-page illuminated music manuscript that was created at the Ephrata Cloister in Pennsylvania in 1746. It considered to be an “American Treasure,” and it is held in the United States Library of Congress. It includes the first original music theory treatise written in America, and it contains evidence of the earliest known women composers in what is today the United States.
